Due to the poor survival in high-grade glioma (HGG), secondary solid malignancies (SSM) following pediatric HGG are scarce. The authors present the experience from the HIT-HGG database in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Five out of 1228 pediatric HGG patients developed a SSM following a latency of 29-122 months from primary HGG diagnosis. In 4 patients, the SSM may be attributed to previous radiotherapy or a tumor predisposition syndrome, reflected by a markedly increased cumulative incidence rate of SSM in patients with tumor predisposition. Survival was devastating, since none of the patients survived beyond 18 months from SSM diagnosis.
